Condolence & Memory Journal


Neil was my car mechanic for years. He was the nicest man and a most honest man. I always knew I would be treated fairly there and he had my best interests in mind. He was one of a kind, they don't make them like him anymore. Neil will be greatly missed.

Susan and family: Nihil was such a wonderful person. I am so happy to have known him since I first walked in to Westgate Tire in 1996 as a customer. He was a gentlemen of the highest order and I always loved listening to his interesting stories about his past as I waited for my car repairs to be completed. He was a great business person who was always honest and upfront with all of his customers. He had a gleam in his eye and was always happy to see anyone who walked through his front door. Over the years, I was so happy to have become his friend. I will truly miss him. You and your family are in my thoughts during this most difficult time. Gary Edwards

Susan, so sorry to hear of Nilhil's passing. I remember meeting him for the first time at 22 Craig court, and thinking that's a smart, handsome, worldly man. How lucky was he to meet you, and you to meet him. Our condolences to you and your family. Frank and Madeline LeBlanc

Dear Sue, Nihil Jr.,Nyselle and Nicole ,
Sending our deepest sympathy , prayers and love at this sad time.

Nihil was a close business associate who worked for the Goodyear Rubber & Tire Company for many years before joining and becoming a part owner of the Capital Tire Company in the Boston area. Nihil became a close friend real fast as he would always find a way to find Schuster's Express, Inc. the best pricing and payment schedule for the company. He was probably the most honest vendor we ever had and whenever a bargain came around we were the first to know. He was a "straight up man" and gained the respect of the trucking industry in New England. Our sincere sympathy and condolences are extended to his wonderful wife Sue and his entire family. May his memory be a blessing to all that knew him. Rest in peace Nihil.
Roz & Steve Schuster

I love you, brother. Bobby

I had the pleasure of working for Nihil at Capitol Tire/ Boston in the early 1980's.
He taught me so much about the tire business and a valuable lesson about being on time for work!
I can honestly say after he had a "talk" with me I was never late again.
Condolences to Susan and family.
